in defense secretary leon panetta has asked that general john allen's nomination to be supreme commander put on hold. for patreaus, panetta asked whether any kags that his affair started when he was still in active duty. >> we obviously are going to watch this closely to determine just exactly you know when that took place. but i think right now my view is, let's see what the investigation turns up and what the congress, these committees are able to determine as to what exactly took place. >> so a friend of general patreaus says the affair starts two months after he took over as cia director and ended about four months ago. four days after the patreaus scandal broke, investigators are trying gather information. what we saw agents searching paula broadwell's home in charlotte, north carolina, the woman involved in the affair with patreaus. fbi spokeswoman would not say what they were actually looking for but you can see they're taking stuff out. seeing the agents carrying boxes and items out of her home last night. it's clear the scandal as it grows could have far-reaching implications. i wan
finding a replacement for defense secretary leon panetta, finding a replacement for secretary of the treasury tim geithner, all of whom, geithner and clinton, have already said they want to leave. it was reported on friday i believe on andrea's show that lee on panetta might want to go. when you have all of those people who are in senior positions within the administration all needing or wanting to go at the same time, having the cia director resign is not the optimal thing to have happen. >> as the late robin harris said, if you have to go, you got to go but going at this time simultaneously is problematic. in light of the fact that panetta and petraeus were seen as outsiders, they weren't organically grown from within, they didn't involve themselves over the years in the organizations they led, that was already a problem. this obviously at the very least is a major distraction at a time when the president needs to be focused on a crucial moment of negotiation with congress on the fiscal cliff with everything from tax revenue to military spending at the state. it seems to be
secretary leon panetta was the man in charge of the cia before petraeus. as tracie mentioned last night, speaking while aboard a flight to australia, panetta reacted to the petraeus scandal. >> it was a very sad situation to have a distinguished career like that end in this manner, and my heart obviously goes out to him and his family. but i think he took the right step. >> elsewhere, washington lawmakers will return to the capital this morning and be buzzing about the investigation. but they'll be facing a much larger problem, talking about the dealing with the trillion dollar fiscal cliff that, if not dealt with before the end of the year, will impact everyone in america. today president obama will be meeting with key labor and progressive leaders at that time white house for the first in a series of high-profile economic talks that he will be hosting this week. >>> in other news from hurricane sandy and last week's nor'easter to spring-like weather in the east and a mercury plunge in the west, where are asking what is with the crazy extremes in weather. nbc chief environmental affair

with jill, leon panetta delivered new comments on the scandal hours ago. is the defense department at the tip of the investigation and what's the latest here? >> well, we'll get to that vote of confidence by mr. panetta in a second, but really the main thing that seems to be now clear is exactly how this unraveled. and it all has to do with tampa where, of course, u.s. central command is located and jill kelley, whom you just saw there, she was involved as a volunteer. she's no diplomatic protection whatsoever, but she was involved as a volunteer dealing with international visitors in the military apparently. so she in this capacity gets to know general petraeus and also general allen. so he gets an e-mail, she gets e-mails. he warns her that he's getting these e-mails, this is jill kelley. and jill kelley goes to the fbi and that is how this all unravels. now, speaking of general allen, he, of course, is the top u.s. and nato commander in afghanistan. he was nominated as the supreme allied commander in europe. and that nomination is on hold. but secretary panetta said that they ha

allen directly? >> not that i'm aware of no. >> secretary panetta? >> i'd have to check that. secretary panetta has been traveling. >> as sort of a follow-up to the last question, is this an unwelcome distraction at the time when he was just reelected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> i certainly wouldn't call it welcome. obviously as i said to ben that the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise, and he is very appreciative of general petraeus' remarkable service to his country, but the president is focused on the agenda that he believes is important for this country, that he has to carry out, working with lawmakers here in washington. and that includes as you know his number one priority, which is jobs and economic growth. and he is engage nothing meetings this week on those issues, on the issues of the approach we need to take to assure we have the right economic policy, the right fiscal policy to help the economy grow and help it to continue to grow jobs. he is also continuously focused on his foreign policy a
really around the world as secretary of state hillary clinton and defense secretary leon panetta both say our nato's allies aren't worried this investigation will hurt our mission in afghanistan in any way. joining us john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. ambassador, nice to see you again. >> good morning. glad to be with you, jenna. jenna: let's talk about when hillary clinton and leon panetta had to say. based on your experience, ambassador, overall what are the effects of personal scandal in international relations? is there any sort of fallout we should be watching? >> i think there can be fallout but at this point i think it would be premature to jump to any conclusions because the circumstances we're talking about are not full le known. i think one of the reasons that secretary panetta in particular has been at pains to say that general allen still has his confidence even though his nomination to head up the european command has been put on hold is because he is still in theater in afghanistan. i think general petraeus's problems are a little bit
in afghanistan is linked to the investigation involving his predecessor. secretary of defense leon panetta says the fbi has turned the case over to department of defense investigators. the senior u.s. defense official says the inquiry centers around potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the florida woman who sparked an investigation that led to petreaus' resignation as head of the cia. >> if you know my sister like i said, she is a dedicated mother and wife. >> reporter: kelley went to the fbi when she received threatening e-mails from an anonymous source. those were allegedly linked to paula broadwell. broadwell was having an affair with petreaus and reportedly believed kelley was a romantic rival for his attention. monday night investigators searched broadwell's home. agents didn't say what they were looking for but carried out boxes and a computer. general allen is in washington dc for senate confirmation hearing for his new job as head of the u.s. european command. however president obama has now agreed to put the general's confirmation for that poston hold. >> while this matt

contact between general john allen, and jill kelley. yesterday, secretary panetta asked that john kelley -- or john allen's nomination to be the head of nato be pulled back and put on hold while the inspector general starts to dig through all of these pages to find out exactly what happened. here's how it all connects. general john allen was stationed in tampa when he was at u.s. central command. so was general david petraeus. jill kelley worked as sort of a social liaison with a lot of the commanders there. in fact, she's been -- won awards for her work with some of the military families, and the military down there. now, paula broadwell started e-mailing jill kelley. and from what we know, some of those e-mails basically took the tone of, you know, stay away from david petraeus, sort of, i know sort of your relationship with some of these other generals, it's inappropriate. at the time it didn't make sense. because what we've been told is, david petraeus and jill kelley are family friends. that david petraeus and his wife holly have spent time with jill kelley and her husband. that the

overnight secretary of defense leon panetta, who previously served as director of the cia weighed in about general petraeus' sudden resignation. reporters asked if general petraeus could be prosecuted if it was determined he was having an affair while on active duty. >> you know, i don't know. i don't know the answer to that. i guess i'm -- i'm reading the papers like you are to determine just, you know, what the committee finds out, what the ultimate investigation determines on that issue. you know, we are going to watch this closely to determine just exactly when that took place. >> but secretary panetta also seemed to side with lawmakers who said the fbi should have informed them earlier about the investigation. >> that's another issue i think we ought to look at. you know, as a former director of the cia and having worked very closely with the intelligence committees, i believe that there is a responsibility to make sure that the intelligence committees are informed of issues that could effect, you know, the security of those intelligence operations. >>> meanwhile, there is new specula

but, and it's a big but, on the other hand, defense secretary leon panetta ordered up a full-blown inspector general investigation, knowing he would set off a new firestorm across washington and leon panetta doesn't do that lightly. people on the other side tell us panetta would not have done it if there wasn't something to all this. >> right. the woman at the center of all this, this woman jill kelley, i'll turn to you, suzanne, on this. i want to play a tape, a 911 tape of kelley calling the tampa police to complain about people who were around the house, citing her status as apparently an honorary consul. listen to this. >> you know, i don't know if by any chance, because i'm an honorary consul general so i have inviolability. so they should not be able to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well, but because that's against the law to cross my property because this is not, you know, it's inviolable. >> she seems to be laboring under massive misapprehensions here. she's not entitled to diplomatic immunity here, is she? >> no,
panetta and clinton are holding bilateral meetings, they should hold opinion until the facts are known about general allen, the latest -- >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job. he certainly has my continued confidence to lead our forces and to continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold. as a prudent measure until we determine what the facts are. >> and though he praised allen, panetta said he felt it was important to refer the matter to the pentagon's inpeck tore general. the senior defense official tells nbc news that panetta didn't make this decision lightly. secretary clinton acknowledged she has talked to u.s. partners about the allen case but says it won't harm the war effort. >> general allen is a distinguished marine and commander who has been an important part of the nato isap mission in afghanistan. there's been a lot of conversation, as you might expect, bob, but no concern whatsoever being expressed to us because the mission has been set forth. it is being carried out. >>
